I'm an ICT engineer by training with research interests in STS, Software Studies, New Media and Anthropology.
Scientific data and information systems
Princeton University Program in History of Science
I study the history of scientific data and information systems, primarily since the late nineteenth century and especially in the chemical sciences. My dissertation, "Nominally Rational: Systematic Nomenclature and the Structure of Organic Chemistry, 1889-1940," traces how European and American chemists built and used rules of nomenclature to order the increasingly numerous and complex objects of chemical science and industry.
I am also pursuing research in the application of physical and digital technology to the conservation and authentication of paintings, the automation of scientific reasoning in late twentieth century synthetic organic chemistry, and the historical relations between structural organic chemistry and graph theory.
History of Computing in France and in Europe
Chargé de recherche, CNRS & Paris-Sorbonne University. Chercheur associé with the Centre Alexandre Koyré
Pierre Mounier-Kuhn has published three books:
• In 2010 an analysis of the emergence of computing in French research and higher education:
• In 2013 a corporate history on information technologies in a major French bank:
• In 2016, a global, richly illustrated History of Computing (in French in its initial version). Emmanuel Lazard & Pierre Mounier-Kuhn, Histoire illustree de l’informatique, Paris, EDP Sciences.
His main fields of interest are:
He collects contemporary art in the form of vintage computer cards and components.
P. Mounier-Kuhn has co-organized a number of international conferences, exhibitions and publications in these fields, and published some 60 papers in French and in English. He participated in "Software for Europe", a collaborative research project within the European Science Foundation. He served in the jury of the Computer History Museum Book Prize (2010-2012).
Business and Economic History; History of Technology
Benson Chair in Business and Economic History, Associate Professor of History
Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma, WA
I am a social, cultural, and business historian interested in studying overlapping cultures, community, and technology. I also have a background in high technology (software development) and European history (Renaissance, Reformation, and early modern science and technology). My current research project is related to the origins of business software in the United States, c. 1970-2000. The project explores investigates business strategy and the software development process, efforts at standardization, marketing software, and the experience of business software users and customers.

Intellectual property, urban history, postindustrial society
Georgia State University
I am interested in the ways that technology, law, economic policy, and popular culture have shaped the landscape of the modern United States. My first book, Democracy of Sound, dealt with the politics of music and intellectual property since the dawn of sound recording, and I am currently working on a project about the rise of the information economy and the emergence of “creativity” as a central theme in discussions of social and economic change in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century.

Computing and Intellectual Property
I am a historian of science and technology with a special interest in law and public policy. My dissertation is a history of software patenting in the United States, and my current works in progress address the development of other forms of intellectual property protection for computer programs. My primary research interests stand at the intersection of the histories of technology, business, and law, but my broader interests include the history of epidemics and women, gender, and sexuality studies.

History and Political Economy of Technological Development
University of Michigan
history and philosophy of information technology
Humboldt Universität zu Berlin
As a scholar of cultural studies I am interested the history and philosophy of technology, in particular of information technologies: My PhD thesis unfolds the intractable genealogy and evidence of the so called "Moore’s Law".
Currently I do research on the historical epistemology of information architectures in the context of interdisciplinarity research and organizational design at the cluster of excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung at the Humboldt University.
Most of my research is inspired by the philosophical questions of the „order and orientation“ and the human condition in the digital age.
